Discourses of war(s) in the 1990s in the (ex)-Yugoslav area May 29th

The concept for the workshop was born during a class with students on the 1990s war in the former Yugoslavia. Speaking about that period, we wanted to take into account the different usages of communication, Croatian, Serbian, Bosnian, common and scholar. It turned out to be difficult to find a coherent language for the 1990s, as it is not clear whether we can talk about one or several wars, or the former Yugoslavia, even though a state with that name existed until 2003.
The program of the workshop is available at the website of PROP (Post-Yugoslav Area Research Center)
